Welcome to the wild world of Skrillex.
Considered one of the top artists in the world Skrillex is the stage name of Sonny John Moore who performs to tens of thousands at concerts worldwide however Skrillex, is not a singer, rapper or even a dancer, he is a super producer who is known in the dance world as the wiz kid, specializing in hard house, electronic dance music and dub step, he is a favourite on dance floors everywhere.
Many consider Skrillex as responsible for bringing the dub step genre to the mainstream music community this year.
In November 2011, he was nominated for a total of 5 Grammy Awards including Best New Artist and won three: "Best Dance/Electronica Album," "Best Dance Recording," and "Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical". In December 2011, he was named MTV's Electronic Dance Music Artist of the Year.
We feature him because he his obviously influenced by reggae and dance hall music (check the hook on this song). A lot of his melodies and samples often feature Jamaican slang even his last Grammy Award winning album was titled Bangarang (obviously an ode to past Prime Minister Bruce Golding).
Skrillex has gone even further into his experimentation with reggae with the recent compilation with Damion Junior Gong Marley called "Make it Bun Dem"
We are not really feeling this one but if you are into hardcore dub step you might catch a vibe off it.
